Easter this year was a special one.  It was Max's first Easter in a classroom.  I know, sounds silly, but it really pretty sweet.  Parents were responsible for bringing sugar cookies, boiled eggs, snacks and plastic eggs filled with treats.  The kids spent time in different stations decorating cookies ( Max was just interested in eating them), coloring eggs and making Easter Baskets.  It was super sweet to watch.  It brought back memories of being a child and having the same experiences.

I did struggle a bit on how to explain Easter to Max.  How do you tell a toddler about the Easter Bunny.  A furry creature that comes in the night to bring you treats and presents, and hides eggs all over the place for you to find?  An odd tradition right?  I asked a few friends what they do.   We all sort of agreed that an explanation wasn't really necessary yet.  Just enjoy it and eat all their candy!
